Shooter Jennings at Amos' Southend tonight (6/22/13)



Shooter Jennings has dabbled in experimental metal, cut his teeth on Southern rock and written songs inlaid with jazz, blues, even R&B, and it all mostly works, but when he dives into the alleys of outlaw country, the son of Waylon and Jessi shines. During the past decade, Shooter Jennings has honed his sound and cleared a naturally genuine path that's all his own. His new album, The Other Life, opens with the oddball track "Flying Saucer Song," which arguably could be a Pink Floyd b-side, and then rips into honky-tonk ethos and relishes in it. The record, though uneven, further evolves and expands his rep. Gospel flourishes check in and piano-inflected ballads rear their heads, while Jennings sings about gunslingers and lonesome cowboys, and disses fake, prepackaged "pretty boy" country singers. With Tater Family Traveling Circus. $15-$66. June 22, 8 p.m. Amos' Southend, 1423 S. Tryon St. 704-377-6874.
